Quotes from Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige from this weekend’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” press junket have begun popping up left and right. During the big press conference, a few details came up about their upcoming film slate.
First up, “Thor: Ragnarok” is “being scripted right now and I think we get a draft soon”. Feige says star Chris Hemsworth has been hounding him to get the writers Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost to hurry up.
“Captain Marvel” is still in very early stages, so early that they’ll be announcing writers announce writers in the next week or two. “Inhuman,” which was pushed back to 2019, is so far off there hasn’t been any progress on that it seems.
“Black Panther” on the other hand is about as far along as the next “Thor” film. Feige says: “I have some director meetings set in the next few weeks once [Avengers: Age of Ultron] gets out the door. And casting is already underway in many ways. Some of which you know about, some of which you don’t.”
In terms of earlier titles, “Captain America: Civil War” is slated to start shooting shortly and “Doctor Strange” will start casting shortly.
